A Magic Show

Last night Brent and I were given a gift of two tickets to the Jay Owenhouse magic show. We were also given some money for dinner. What a fun “free” date night. I have never been to a magic show before.… Read the rest

Speedster

Yes, this is about me, Jessica, and how crazy fast I am at running. They call me the speedster! Yeah right, not in this lifetime. Although I am happy with the times I put up as I know I work my hardest, I am not the speedster.… Read the rest

Uncomfortable

One afternoon last week, I was asked to take part in a friends senior project. He needed a lead vocal to fill the position of another that ended up unavailable for the concert.

The Number 24

I woke up at 5:00 in┬áthe morning on the 5th for a run. What a better way to start off your birthday (besides sleeping in)? Things started to go wrong. I didn’t have a good nights sleep. Getting up when all you want to do is sleep is not much fun.… Read the rest

Isaiah 6:8

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

God asked us to go. I want to be continually saying, “Here am I!… Read the rest

Work to be Done

There is always work to be done. How you do it depends on where you are. Where you are influences what you have. What you have has bearing on how fast it can be done. In some places, work will be automated.… Read the rest
